Hear ye, Hear ye! SAAC is excited to host auditions for two upcoming productions of “Once Upon a Mattress” – a fun fairy-tale rendition of “The Princess and The Pea” made into a musical. The SAAC Theatre Committee is hosting a community theatre production of the full-length musical on October 19-29, and the SAAC Arts Academy Teen Drama Club is presenting the one-hour youth edition on November 9-10. Both groups will hold auditions the last week of August.

Come and be a part of this fairy-tale adventure. Your destiny awaits you!

The Community Theatre production, sponsored by Nexans AmerCable and Southern Bancorp, will host auditions August 28-29 with registration starting at 6:30pm and auditions starting promptly at 7:00pm. Attend either or both days. Expect there to be cold scene readings, some singing, and dress for movement. A song list will be provided, and you will need to choose a song to sing a 30-45 second cut at auditions. Callbacks will be held August 30th at 6:30pm.

The Drama Club production, sponsored by Southern Airways Express, will host auditions for the youth edition August 29 & 31 from 4pm. Students grades 7-12 can attend either or both days. Select a 45 second cut from a song of your choice to sing, and bring the music track. There will also be a selection of monologues from the show provided. Make sure to prepare a monologue from that selection. Also, expect to learn a short-dance exercise. Callbacks will be September 5 at 4pm, and scene reading will be provided.

Auditions for both productions will be held in the Callaway Theatre. For more information follow the links below or call SAAC at 870-862-5474.
